Rick and his team of professional photographers/videographers went above and beyond what we would have expected for our wedding. Much like any couple getting married and looking for vendors, we didn't know who to trust. Fortunately, choosing RS7 studios was somewhat of a "no-brainer". We spoke beforehand and went over different package options that were reasonably priced. After we chose our package, we met with the team that would be there on our big day to go over how things would flow and what to expect. Everything was tailored to our liking with some much needed professional advice for things we weren't sure about. On our big day the team was on time, looked professional, and was ready to go to work. They even took the time to do some "recon" on where to get the best pictures and how to set up at our venues. This helped reduce time wasted with unexpected circumstances. As the day flew by, my wife and I could tell that the pictures were going to be great because the passion each team member had. At the end of the night, everyone had gone home except my parents, my bride and Rick the photographer (and wife). As a commitment to service, Rick stayed until our getaway car came (one hour late) at around 12:30 at night to get the last shot. This was very reassuring in the fact that he did whatever it took to make the memory of our special day unforgettable. I would definitely recommend RS7 Studios to anyone who wants quality, professional photography services for any occasion.

Richard and Steve were our wedding photographers. They were absolutely outstanding!! Guests are still raving about their professionalism and outstanding capabilities. We love our images and could not imagine how our wedding would have turned out without them. When other aspects of the wedding had issues, they were there with offers and suggestions. They were flexible for our schedules and captured the best moments of our wedding day. For this we cannot be grateful enough. They put heart and soul into their work and we appreciate it as I am sure many others do. We will use them for future events as well as recommend them to everyone we speak to.

Very satisfied customer!
